In Kingsville, authorities made a big bust during a routine traffic stop after finding 400-thousand dollars hidden away in a pick-up truck. It happened earlier this month when Kingsville police stopped a pick-up truck on US Highway 77. During the traffic stop, the driver, Juan Guitierrez-Molina appeared to be nervous. During a search of the vehicle, police discovered about 400-thousand dollars inside a false battery charger that was completely gutted out.
